#74 What We Did When My Daughter Had a Fever


Chiropractic West Bend WI Child With Fever

My daughter: Addie just had a fever for a few days, and I wanted to share what we did to help her body heal and fight off whatever was bothering her.

Hopefully you will find this valuable.

A fever is the body intentionally raising its temperature to perform 2 very healthy functions.

#1) Stimulate white blood cells to move around and kill the foreign invaders.
#2) The heat can help denature the proteins in the foreign invaders which destroys them.

Most people are taught to kill the fever immediately but, in this case, you are only helping the foreign invaders.

There is one very important concept to keep in mind… You must keep the body hydrated, because it is burning through water faster than normal.

We forced my daughter to drink juice, water, kombucha and whatever else she would drink. She is only 2 so sometimes, negotiations can be difficult, but this kept her body safe.

We also gave her herbs, supplements, oils and checked her alignment. She was holding and in alignment, so I just let her body do what it needed to do.

Then, 2 days later, the fever was gone but a cough had now started.

In my next blog, I will explain why coughs, sweats and mucous often occur after the fever has been successful.
